Mission Trip or Pilgrimage to Austin: The Harmony of Nature

"The real treasure of the Texas Hill Country is its natural beauty."
VOYAGE TYPE
  • Narrative Voyage

The Texas Hill Country surrounding its Capitol holds a uniquely diverse ecosystem worth exploring. Original settlers profited from the region through cotton, ranching, and farming among a system of waterways. The later Oil Boom brought the biggest influx of growth to the Central Texas region. But the real treasure of the Texas Hill Country is its natural beauty. Today, it offers a wide variety of flora and fauna – each that serves a specific purpose in the larger system.

Our Harmony of Nature Austin voyage will dig into the intricate native wildlife within its city limits. Each stop explores an element of nature that serves its greater ecosystem and in turn, supports human life – from animals and insects to waterways and plant life. A three-day retreat to Central Texas opens the door of understanding to how each one of us plays a role in our native communities and brings value to the whole.
